Excessive snoring can be more than an annoyance; it may be a symptom of sleep apnea. Dr. Herskovits can help you achieve restful sleep and avoid more serious health complications with special oral appliances worn at night to keep the airways open and clear.
We always prefer to save teeth whenever possible. However, if a tooth is too badly damaged, impacted, or decayed, we may have to extract it to protect your oral health. Once the tooth is removed, we can restore your smile with dental implants and custom restorations.
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that emerge in your late teens or early twenties. If they do not emerge properly, they can cause significant pain and other complications. We provide wisdom tooth removal to help patients maintain healthy, properly aligned smiles.

Snoring is a condition that affects many adults. Caused by obstructions in the airways, snoring can impact your quality of sleep as well as the sleep of others. Fortunately, simple lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and refraining from consuming alcohol before bedtime, can help reduce or eliminate snoring. For more severe cases, medical devices may be recommended.
